MBC Junior Captures Gates Millennium Scholarship 

President's letter 

I'd like to take this opportunity to 
share with you our vision and plans 
in several important areas: faculty 
expansion and curriculum develop- 
ment; technology improvements; 
student life; and athletics. 

As out enrollment increases 
(266 freshmen this fall - 29 PEG stu- 
dents and 43 VW1L; 32 transfers; 17 
new MAT students; and 119 new 
ADP students), we are making 
sure that we continue to provide 
the individual attention that is 
the hallmark of a Mary Baldwin 
College education. We are 
s expanding Mary Baldwin Col- 
§ lege's full-time faculty so that we 
s can continue to offer small 
| classes and high quality. Cur- 
1 rently, our student-to-faculty 
ratio is 11:1, and our average class 
size is 17. 

In expanding our faculty, we are 
huilding on our strengths, as well as 
developing new specialties to meet 
the needs of our students. As of this 
fall, the college has three new full- 
time faculty in psychology, one in 
English, and one in communica- 
tions. In the coming year, we will 
conduct national searches for addi- 
tional faculty in the fields of business 
and computer science, as well as a 
faculty member to open an Adult 
Degree Program regional office in 
Northern Virginia. 

As we look to the future, we 
know we must build on exceptional 
programs to make them even 
stronger, and so we are in the plan- 
ning stages of developing a master's 
level program in psychology. Gradu- 
ate programs have a beneficial 
impact on undergraduate studies 
because they bring additional 
resources to Mary Baldwin, which 
are then available to all students. 
This master's program will bring 
additional prestige to our college 
and, ultimately, enhance the value of 
a Mary Baldwin degree. 

We are also well on the way to 
developing a master's level program 
in Shakespearean studies, as we 
reported in the spring issue of the 
Mar-y Baldwin Magazine. Shenan- 
doah Shakespeare has broken 
ground for their Blackfriars Play- 

house and will later build a replica of 
the Globe Theatre here in Staunton. 
Their plan is to make Staunton a 
major center for performance and 
study of Shakespeare. This provides 
a once-in-a-generation opportunity 
for us at Mary Baldwin to partner 
with another organization to build 
something that will be truly unique 
and valuable. Like a master's pro- 
gram in psychology, it will bring new 
resources and experiences to all our 

Last year, as part of a library 
renovation project, we provided 
Internet access for study carrels, 
established a new information 
resources teaching lab, and signifi- 
cantly expanded our online services 
and resources for distance students. 
Over $3.4 million in contributions 
to our math and science initiative 
are helping us enhance our techno- 
logical capabilities through equip- 
ment, training, faculty, facilities, and 
student scholarships. 

Our next advance in technolo- 
gy is to offer student services in a 
whole new way, with more informa- 
tion available to students more con- 
veniently. This year, students have 
access to registration and financial 
information via computer. They are 
able to search for courses meeting 
their individual needs, view their 
transcripts, check grades, review the 
balance on their accounts, and sub- 
mit address changes online. In the 
coming year, we will begin testing 
online registration. 

Thanks to a major grant from 
the New York-based Teagle Foun- 
dation, we are expanding services 
and support for students in other 
ways as well, especially in their 
transition from high school student 
to college student. This grant allows 
us to refocus the work of the Sena 
Center - now named the Rosemarie 
Sena Center for Career Planning 
and Freshman Services - to ensure 
that new on-campus students make 
a successful ttansition. The grant 
allows us to place freshmen in 
"FAST (freshman and sophomore 
transition) teams," small groups 
with assigned advisors and staff 
contact people. 

As a college, we continue to 
look at how we bring an increasingly 
diverse student population together 
as a community with shared core 
values. As times change, our com- 
mitment to honesty, integrity, 
respect, and responsibility - repre- 
sented by the Honor and Judicial 
Codes - remains firm. However, the 
issues that need to be resolved under 
those codes have become complex 
and difficult tor the student councils 
responsible for enforcing them. So, I 
have appointed a special commis- 
sion to examine the procedures for 
dealing with honor and judicial 
offenses. My charge to the commis- 
sion, co-chaired by faculty members 
Dr. John L. Kibler III and Dr. Roder- 
ic L. Owen, is to present a plan for 
implementation by the end of 
December 2000. 

The theme that runs through all 
these initiatives is responsiveness to 
the needs of our students in a fast- 
paced world. That is true of our ath- 
letics progtam as well. It has been 
growing in recent years, and we 
expect that intercollegiate sports at 
Mary Baldwin will continue to 
increase in importance, because more 
students want to be highly competi- 
tive. To meet this growing interest, 
we have reallocated funds to set up a 
varsity program in softball this fall 
and one in cross country in the fall of 
2001. We are also investigating the 
possibility of joining a different ath- 
letic conference. 

This is our great strength as a 
college: we look the present squarely 
in the eye, act quickly in response to 
a changing world, plan for the 
future, and continually seek new 
ways to serve our students better. 
This is Mary Baldwin College today.

MBC Approaches 
its Ambitious Goal 

In October 1999, Charlotte Jackson Berry '51, chair of the Leadership 
Initiative, announced a $50 million capital campaign at Mary Bald- 
win. This will he the largest amount ever raised by any of the Virginia 
women's colleges. 

To date, the campaign has successfully raised funds for a number 
of special projects at the college. These include 
the Health Care Administration program, lead- 
ership programming, the chaplaincy and 
religious programming, math/science and other 
endowed scholarships, and scientific and tech- 
nology equipment purchases. The campaign's 
continuing success has provided funds for the 
renovations of McClung, the Administration 
Building, Pearce Science Center, and Grafton 
Library. These gifts have helped the Annual 
Fund reach an excess of $6.5 million over the 
last five years. 

In April, the Board of Trustees wanted to 
deliver the good news about the Leadership Ini- 
tiative to alumnae/i, parents, and friends. They traveled to Dallas, 
TX, and spent a grand Wednesday night celebrating with over 80 
alumnae/i, parents, and friends at the Movie Studios at Las Colinas. 
All those gathered enjoyed a movie memorabilia tour and having 
their pictures taken in the Oval Office set from Oliver Stone's JFK. 
The Texas celebration was so successful that the board decided 
to visit our alumnae/i in Richmond. On July 19, over 260 members of 
the MBC family joined at the Virginia Historical Society for music, 
food, and conversation. Charlotte Berry, Yum Arnold, and Dr. Tyson 
gave the campaign update and enthusiastically thanked the donors 
who were present. 

While the campaign has done an outstanding job so far, certain 
projects still remain short of their funding goals. Undesignated dollars 
will help to complete these special projects and allow the Leadership 
Initiative campaign to make MBC history. 

Be part of the good news. For more information about giving 
opportunities and upcoming events in your area, please contact the 
Office of Institutional Advancement at 800-622-4255.

Many generous gifts of time, talent and financial resources have 
contributed to the success of the Leadership Initiative 

Mr. and Mrs. Hunter W Henry Jr. 

A gift of $150,000 by Mr. and Mrs. 
Hunter W. Henry Jr. has endowed schol- 
arships at Man - Baldwin. Mr. Henry, 
former president of Dow Chemical USA 
and executive vice president of the Dow 
Chemical Company, graduated from 
Staunton Military Academy in 1946. He 
created the scholarships "to memorialize 
the love and sacrifice of [his] parents 
who gave [him] the opportunity to 
enrich his education and to preserve 
the legacy of SMA that made an 
indelible mark upon [him] and thou- 
sands of other young men." Henry 
credits his parents' example and his 
SMA experience for his success as a 
business, civic, and family leader. 

The first award rec- 
ognizing an outstand- 
ing ROTC cadet was 
presented this fall to 
! VWIL 1st Captain 
Js Krisry M. Wheeler of 
Richmond, VA. Schol- 
arships have also been 
established to provide financial assis- 
tance for descendants of SMA alumni, 
faculty, and staff.

"For my 40th reunion, I agreed to call 
ten of my best friends to ask them 
to contribute to our reunion class fund. 
The deadline arrived, and I could not 
place one call! I was just too afraid. 
However, I agreed to call ten classmates 
to solicit for our 45th reunion and 1 did! 
I had wonderful visits with classmates, 
and I had fun and success. So, when I 

Kristy M. Wheeler 

was asked to serve on the Leadership 
Initiative Committee as a special advisor, 
I agreed. After all, an advisor does not 
have to ask for money. At my first meet- 
ing, I listened to the trustees' report on 
their fund-raising activities. I was in awe 
of their commitment to and belief in the 
college. Their efforts impressed me so 
much that I made a five-year pledge that 
very day. 

Since then, I have done some solic- 
itation with the help and guidance of the 
staff in Institutional Advancement. 
Everyone I solicited has been most gra- 
cious. It has been an exciting and reward- 
ing experience. Many of us do not have 
much money, but we can still make a 

There are many ways to volunteer 
in support of Mary Baldwin. It is a worth- 
while experience. Try it; I'm glad I did." 

Dr. Elizabeth M. Hair field 
and Hampton H. Hairfield Jr. 

Dr. Elizabeth M. Hairfield, professor of 
chemistry and holder of the Caroline 
Rose Hunt Distinguished Chair in the 
Natural Sciences, and her husband, 
Hampton H. Hairfield Jr., chemistry 
laboratory instructor and specialist in 
resins and perfumes, have made a gift 
to recognize academic achievement by 
MBC students. 

According to the Hairfields, 
establishing The Charles E. Rutenber 
and James B. Patrick Endowment for 
Excellence in Chemistry and Physics 
provided an opportunity for them to 
show their loyalty to MBC and to its 
outstanding science faculty. "Mary 
Baldwin College and Dr. James B. 
Patrick have played an important part 
in our lives for more than 30 years. 

Although we knew Dr. Charles Ruten- 
ber for less than one quarter of that 
time, his friendship was very meaning- 

Honoree Dr. James B. Patrick, 
professor emeritus of chemistry, said, 
"Women can make outstanding con- 
tributions to humanity through the 
sciences, but are still underrepresented 
in the field. The habits of systematic 
thought that science requires are 
applicable in other areas and, in fact, 
many of our graduates in the sciences 
have gone on to make contributions 
in other areas as well." 

The endowment is open to con- 
tributions from others who wish to 
honor Dr. Patrick or Dr. Rutenber and 
to provide financial assistance for stu- 
dents who excel in chemistry and

"My participation in Man* Baldwin's 
Oxford program created for me a love 
of things British, as well as a love of 
travel. So, when I was reviewing my 
estate plan with my attorney, I wanted 
to include a provision to provide 
future MBC students and faculty with 
international study opportunities. 
Because of tax laws, we decided my 
401K was the ideal asset to fund my 
gift to Mary Baldwin. I continue to be 
impressed with Man" Baldwin's leader- 
ship in higher education. Opening our 
doors through such programs as 
VWIL, PEG, ADP, and MAT has 
ensured that we meet needs beyond 
those of traditional students. I am glad 
that I can make this commitment to 
MBC and hope other alumnae/i will 
consider similar gifts."

For a decade, 1 have been fascinated by a series of fifteenth 
century murals begun by Fra Angelico and completed by 
Luca Signorelli in the cathedral ofOrvieto in Italy. How the 
murals' unique combination of Last judgement, apocalyp- 
tic, and literary scenes fit together especially intrigued me, 
and in my opinion no one had provided a convincing expla- 
nation. Research and intuition led me to investigate the 
Roman liturgy for a logical solution, and indeed, it provided 
many missing links. I needed verification, however, which 
meant research in dusty liturgical books in Italian libraries 
and in the archives in Orvieto. Rome seemed ideal: the Vat- 
ican Library holds the world's largest collection of liturgical 
books, and Orvieto lies an hour's train ride away, so I 
applied and was accepted as a visiting scholar at the Ameri- 
can Academy in Rome for January and February 2000. 

Tuesday, January 18 

I arrived in Rome today to temperatures of 50F and blue 
skies. After clearing customs and getting my luggage 
(marked "HEAVY" by US Airways), I took a train into the 
city and then a taxi to the American Academy, one of many 
national academies for art and scholarship in Rome. 

The American Academy 
crowns the Janiculum Hill, the 
tallest hill within the walls of 
Rome but not one of the Canoni- 
cal Seven. The century-old main 
building resembles an Italian villa, 
with four wings built at right 
angles around a cortile, or court- 
yard - the typical Italian "square 
doughnut" configuration. An 
open, vaulted walkway surrounds 
the quiet courtyard, and in the 
center, four tall cedars of Lebanon majestica! 
frame a fountain. Inside, the ground floor hous- 
es public spaces. On the street side, a large 
"salone," with its big fireplace and grand piano, 

functions as a living room. A 

kitchen, formal dining room, 

and offices fill the rest of the 

wing. The library occupies 

the facing, quieter side of the 

building. A large reading 

room with big windows on 
f*_, , the ground level invites 

scholars to be distracted by 

the lovely gardens outside. 

The upper two floors contain 

living quarters and studios.

Rome, Arche of Septimus Severus is on the right.

eto. The Last Judgement frescoes on the ceiling 
were begun by Fra Angelico in 1447. Luca Signorel- 
li was hired in 1499 to finish the ceiling. He then 
expanded the program into the upper walls to 
include additional scenes of Judgement, The Apoc- 
alypse. On the lower walls he painted author por- 
traits surrounded by scenes from Dante's Divine 
Comedy and classical mythology.

As it will be every night 
but Sundays, my dinner was at 
8:00 by candlelight. This is the primary 
social gathering of the day. The scene 
reminds me of E.M. Forster's novel A Room 
with a View - the rarified atmosphere, the 
diverse people whose common bond is Italy, 
and the stimulating dinner conversation. (I 
sat beside Deeana Klepper from Williams 
College, who volunteered to shepherd me 
through the Vatican Library tomorrow.) Our 
waiter serves us four courses: pasta or soup, 

meat and vegetables, salad, and fruit or dessert. At 9:30, the 

lights are raised and everyone disperses. 

Conversation usually revolves around research projects, 
this time Academy Director Lester Little of Smith College's 
research on the bubonic plague during the reign of Justin- 
ian (6th century), which was as devastating to Europe as 
the 1348 "Black Death." I learned that the plague contin- 
ued sporadically in Europe until the 17th century, but was 
never again as disastrous as the 1348 bout. Interestingly, 
during that time it never crossed the Atlantic. The virulent 
disease moved quickly. Any sick aboard the sailing ships 
apparently either died or recovered before they got to the

Dean Lott Announces Retirement 

by Sarah O'Connor 

Mary Baldwin College without James D. 
Lott? It seems impossible. Yet, after 37 years 
at the college, 15 as dean, Lott has 
announced his retirement effective the end 
of the 2000-2001 academic year. 

Professor, administrator, actor, author, 
community activist, church leader, racon- 
teur, lecturer, father, husband. Lott has 
played all these roles and more. With his 
trademark Tennessee accent, perfect man- 
ners, graceful writing, and ready wit, he has 
entertained and shepherded both the col- 
lege community and the broader communi- 
ty since he first moved to Staunton with his 
wife Pamela over 30 years ago. 

Lott earned his B.A. at the University 
of Tennessee, his M.A. at Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity, and his Ph.D. at the University ot 
Wisconsin. Hired barely out of graduate 
school, Lott came to Mary Baldwin as an 
instructor of English in 1964. By 1976, he 
had achieved the rank of full professor and 

was appointed dean in 1986. 

Lott's long tenure at the college has 
given him a unique perspective: "What 
attracted me to Mary Baldwin was the 
institutional commitment to high academ- 
ic standards, the liberal arts, character 
development, and careful and caring 
teaching. These have stayed the same, and 
that's good and important to note. The 
major change has been in our increased 
diversity, both in our student body and our 
educational programs. The 'face' of our stu- 
dent population is more reflective of 
American society - in terms of race, eco- 
nomic status, and age - than was the case 
in 1964. Our programs - PEG, VWIL, 
ADP, and MAT - serve the educational 
needs of a world that is very different from 
the world in 1964. And, while we remain 
committed to the liberal arts, we have 
learned to focus more intentionally on how 
the liberal arts prepare students for life, 

careers, and leadership. We've changed 
incredibly, but we've remained true to our 

Lott is an 18th-century English litera- 
ture scholar and an accomplished creative 
writer. While he was teaching and serving 
as dean of the college, he continued to 
publish short fiction and essays in numer- 
ous journals, including The Virginia Quar- 
terly, The Southern Review and The Emrys 
journal. In 1987, he won the O. Henry 
Award for Short Fiction for his story "The 
Janeites." This story was later reprinted in 
Price Stories: The O.Henry Awards 1987. 
Lott also won the Emrys Prize for Short 
Fiction in 1986. He is listed in Writers in 
Virginia and in Poets and Writers. His publi- 
cations have led to readings and workshops 
across the state - from Old Dominion Uni- 
versity to Virginia Wesleyan University. 

Lott has also been active professional- 
ly in many organizations. He has served 

Mary Baldwin Ci 

Magazine • Fall 21 mo 

since 1990 on the Steering Committee for 
the duPont Foundation Minority Scholars 
Program. From 1983 to 1986, he was the 
director of the summer program co-spon- 
sored by MBC and Doshisha Women's Col- 
lege in Japan. He served five terms on the 
Fellowship and Grant Review Panel for the 
Virginia Foundation for the Humanities 
and Public Policy, three years on the Grant 
Review Panel for the Virginia Commission 
for the Arts, and one year on the review 
panel for the National Endowment for the 
Humanities. From 1982 to 1984, he was 
the director of the Mellon Foundation Six- 
College Faculty Development Program. 

Along the way, Lott has made signifi- 
cant contributions to the local community. 
He chaired the Staunton Public Library 
Board from 1976 to 1982 and the Depart- 
ment of Mission Outreach for the Episco- 
pal Diocese of Southwestern Virginia from 
1979 to 1985. He was on the vestry of 

Emmanuel Episcopal Church from 1984 to 
1986 and served as senior warden from 
1992 to 1993. Other boards on which he 
has taken leadership positions include the 
Woodrow Wilson Birthplace Foundation, 
Historic Staunton Foundation, Habitat for 
Humanity, Amnesty International, the 
Staunton Fine Arts Association, and the 
Staunton Salvation Army. 

Registrar Lewis Askegaard has worked 
closely with Lott for 17 years. He said, "No 
matter what kind of pressures he has faced, 
I've never caught him depressed or in a bad 
mood. He's never more than a word or two 
from a smile and a chuckle. He is blessed 
with the kind of wisdom that never lets 
him lose perspective and the kind of gen- 
erosity of spirit that lets him shrug off 
issues that would leave most of us mutter- 
ing to ourselves. We've been through some 
tough times together - budget crises, 
tenure decisions, faculty uproar, legal 

threats, the kinds of things it's hard to 
laugh at. But no matter how hard things 
are, Jim is always Jim." 

President Cynthia H. Tyson said, "He 
has given us academic leadership of stellar 
quality, and stability in a time of signifi- 
cant change.... It has been a great privilege 
to serve with him, for 1 admire him deeply 
and know, in daily ways, his strong com- 
mitment to our college. But we rejoice 
with him as he moves on to other personal 
tasks and opportunities which we know 
will give him much pleasure." A search 
committee made up of representatives from 
the faculty, trustees, administration, and 
student body has begun a national search 
for a new chief academic officer, but their 
task will not be easy. 

"I have no idea what size his feet are," 
said Dean for Academic Outreach Kath- 
leen Stinehart, "but regardless, he's leaving 
big shoes to fill."

Cornett-Scott Plants 
the Seeds of Faith 

Andrea Cornea-Scon, Mary Baldwin's 
director of African- American affairs and 
gfeg-^H multicultural 
**-c j 3 understanding, felt 
a call to start a new 
church in Lexing- 
ton, VA, and she 
answered. The con- 
gregation of Christ 
Our Redeemer AME Church is temporar- 
ily housed in St. Patrick's Catholic 
Church. The first sendee took place on 
July 16. 

When the new church is fully opera- 
tional, Comett-Scott plans to change the 
name to Greater Things AME Church. 
She plans to reach out to single women, 
one-parent families, and women who 
come from a background of abuse. She 
also wants to involve the church in the 
lives of area college students, with out- 
reach programs aimed at Mary Baldwin.

Virginia Military Institute. 

Team 2000 Program 

Fifty-six members of the incoming fresh- 
man class are participating in a new pro- 
gram developed to empower students in 
the areas of scholarship, wellness, and 
leadership. Borrowing from the success of 
the Virginia Women's Institute for Leader- 
ship, the Team 2000 program provides 
participating freshmen with faculty, staff, 
and student leader mentors to guide them 
through the first year. 

Team 2000 operates on six principles: 

• Develop mind, body, and spirit. Each 

individual is responsible for her own 
well being. 

• Respect others. Each individual must 

value honor and integrity. 

• Participate in the life of the college. 

Each individual is accountable for the 
quality of het community. 

• Be open to new people, technologies, 
and ideas. Each individual must 

think critically, create, and 
embrace adventure. 

• Accept challenge. Each individual must 

balance action and reflection. 

• Know yourself. Each individual has the 
responsibility to shape her own life. 

Team 2000 teaches students skills 
such as academic planning and goal set- 
ting, time management, and locating cam- 
pus resources. 

Assistant Dean of Students Angela 
Roth is a member of Team 2000 and has 
already witnessed very positive results. 
"Frobably the most striking thing about 
the Team 2000 program so far is to see the 
benefits for students of living together and 
spending classroom time together. It has a 
totally different dynamic - we have been 
able to creatively address community issues 
with them, and they are enthusiastic par- 
ticipants in that process."

If you have been diagnosed with 
breast cancer, "welcome to The

once from other "breast cancer sur- 
vivors," another string of words that 
will become part of your vocabulary. 
I can't tell you not to panic, but do 
start reading immediately. 

Knowledge is power, and Dr. 
Susan Love's The Breast Book was the 
single most useful resource in helping 
me decide what options were best for 
me. Because, guess what, you're man- 
aging your own health and outcome 
here. There is no one right answer. Dr. 
Love's web site ( 
contains additional helpful and up- 
to-date information. And talk to 
other women who have been 
through it. It helps tremendously. 
Before I was diagnosed (the 

"Life's mishaps and horrors are only a page 
out of a grand book." 

Max Lucado, In the Eye of the Storm 

lump was found by my gynecologist, 
not through a mammogram), I 
wouldn't think of going near the "C" 
word. It took me quite a while after 
my diagnosis even to admit the "C" 
word; I insisted on saying I had a 
malignant tumor that had been 
removed. I was determined to put 
this behind me as fast as possible and 
get my life back to what it was 
before. Reality set in doctor-visit-by- 
doctor-visit. Like the reality that 

even some Stage 1 breast cancer sur- 
vivors die from recurrence. Like the 
reality of having to take Tamoxifen 
for five years to reduce the chance of 
recurrence. Like the reality of hav- 
ing to have sonograms of the uterus, 
since Tamoxifen increases one's risk 
of endometrial cancer. Like the reali- 
ty of having to lose all the breast 
tissue including the nipple if one 
wants reconstructive surgery. Like 
the 25 to 40 percent chance of hav- 
ing to replace the implants. (They 
use saline implants to give you back 
all your tears.) There is a lot of 
accepting the unacceptable. 

If you're a breast cancer survivor 
(don't you wish we could come up 
with a better name for ourselves?), 
pick up a copy of Katherine Russell 
Rich's The Red Devil, To Hell with 
Cancer — and Back. It is funny, har- 
rowing, and makes my experience 
(and maybe yours) sound like a pic- 
nic in the park. Consider attending 
the National Breast Cancer Coali- 
tion Advocacy Training Conference 
in Washington, DC, held annually 
around the first of May. It was a 
milestone in my healing process. I 
remember being amazed as I looked 
into a ballroom full of survivors. It 
gave me a sense of what an epidemic 
breast cancer really is. There were 
over 30 women in the breast cancer 
survivors' yoga class. In addition to 
the yoga class, we received the latest 
information on breast cancer detec- 
tion and treatment methods, and 
training on how to lobby for research 
and clinical trials. And we danced! 

Most life-changing experiences 
cause one to re-order priorities. A 
wonderful woman from San Francis- 
co, whom I've yet to meet but talked 
to on the phone, said to me, "Now I 
really consider what projects are 
worth it enough to test my immune 
system." She had had reconstructive 
surgery after a bilateral mastectomy. 
I find myself now, too, weighing how 
far I'm going to push myself. Is the 
effort and stress of some things really 
worth it? And some things that used 
to bother me just don't matter any- 
more. Who has time to harbor ill 

will? Who has the time to take 
offense at someone else's uninten- 
tional actions? I'd rather be celebrat- 
ing life. (I'm going to go to Italy 

Now that I have taken another 
step in processing my experience by 
writing this, maybe I can finally 
write to Professor Emeritus of The- 
atre Fletcher Collins and his wife 
Margaret about how deeply sorry I 
was to hear about the death of their 
daughter-in-law Celia through breast 
cancer. How paradoxical that their 
son, Francis Collins, has been head- 
ing up work to map the human 
genome, a major step in a future cure 
for breast cancer. He was the top 
story in the national media the day 
after Celia's memorial service. 

"Only the paradox comes 
anywhere near to comprehending 
the fullness of life."

I sat in the paper gown in the sur- 
geon's office praying and singing 
Gospel songs of thanksgiving and 
praise to God for rescue while I wait- 
ed for the surgeon to come in. The 
biopsy had been the decisive diag- 
nostic factor. The mammogram per- 
formed a month prior and the 
ultrasound performed two years prior 
had been negative. My health care 
team had assumed that the breast 
discharge I had experienced for six 
years was puberty-related. At age 22, 
I was too young for breast cancer; 
they thought that a dysfunctional 
milk duct was to blame. The surgeon 
and his assistant finally bustled into 
the room and said hello without 
making eye contact. He said he had 
some bad news. "They found malig- 
nancy in the tissue, but it was a small 
bit, about 4 mm." 

He continued with his recom- 
mendation: reexcision (cleaning 
around the area of the biopsy) and 
removal of lymph nodes to make sure 

Fall 2000 • Mary Baldwin College Magazine 

the cancer had not spread, then radia- 
tion. He concluded with what I call "the 
hysteria pause" - the pause that health 
care professionals provide after bad news 
- hut there was no hysteria The doctor 
said, "Do you understand what I've said? 
There was malignancy... cancer." 

I nodded. "I want to do the reexci- 
sion with radiation." 

This was late August. The second 
surgery was scheduled for mid-October. I 
would learn 
more about 
prayer and 
God's will as 1 
through the 
summer and 
winter of 1998. 

My mother called from work. She 
wanted a report on the appointment; I 
told her all was well. I gave my father 
the same report. My plan was to quietly 
undergo the surgery and radiation with- 
out my family knowing. I didn't think 
they were strong enough to handle the 
news. My mother's sister was coping 
with a complete mastectomy in New 
York. But my mother kept asking ques- 
tions. She has this talent: she can tell 
when I'm hiding something. She asked 
daily. Finally, I told her. I was sitting on 
her bed as she combed her hair. She 
was quiet for a moment. She held the 
comb in her hand and stared into space 
before she spoke again. "Why didn't you 
tell me?" 

"I just didn't want to tell," I said 
weakly. She asked who I had told. The 
list consisted erf close friends, no rela- 
tives. My mother and I were close, and I 
think this hurt her. She later accompa- 
nied me to six "second" opinions from 
leading breast cancer specialists, 
internists, and surgeons in the Baltimore 
area, a sign of the renewed strength of 
our connection. 

Finally, I had the second surgery. 
There was no pain afterward. My great- 
est entertainment was maneuvering my 
temporary drain tube in the shower and 
during public "outings," and wondering 
what my breast looked like beneath the 
white bandages. 

My peers considered it a freak inci- 
dent - breast cancer is not prevalent in 
22-year-olds. I received cards and letters 
and e-mails from friends, professors, co- 
workers, and family. My post-surgery 
time was filled with laughter. 

I had a strong relationship with 
God, and this time was for us. He talked 
and I listened. One morning I cried. I 
didn't want to die early, I told Him. I 

think there was some, "This isn'l fair" 
and "I warn to do work tor you, so you 
can't take me now." Then softly, ( iod 
whispered, "If you believe that I know 
best in every situation, then trust me." A 
great peace settled over me. God can be 
very convincing. 

One month after surgery, I started 
radiation. I was the youngest outpatient 
on the early morning roster. Most of the 
patients were older African- American 
women, and they 
spoiled me. In 
turn, I encouraged 
them. Many com- 
mented that if I 
could be positive 
at 22 years of age, 
then they could be 
positive at their ages. 

My oncologist wanted me to seek 
counseling because I was so positive and 
cheerful during radiation. "You don't 
have to be happy for everybody," she 
said warmly. 

But I wasn't angry; I didn't hate 
God; I didn't hate the situation. I 
thought treatment was a great opportu- 
nity to share a lot of laughter and love 
with others. Even today, one of my 
greatest pleasures is going back to the 
hospital and encouraging new patients 
who are receiving treatment.

After three boys, joy filled the 
Smith household when Eva 
Carol was born. Her name 
meant "life's song of joy," and she was 
indeed that and more. She was a happy 
person all her life. She had a million- 
dollar smile and her family and friends 
were her priority. Throughout her 
school years she got excellent grades, 
was an athlete (playing #1 on the tennis 
team), and was president of the student 
government as a senior in high school. 
In college, she 
did well and 


that UNC's T 

coach, Dean 
Smith, would 
not think of 
starting a bas- 
ketball game until she was in the "Dean 
Dome." Carol knew the players' 
strengths and their weaknesses as well as 
her three big brothers did. 

Carol graduated from college and 

became a banker. Her employers knew 
that if there was a personnel problem in 
her branch, she would eventually 
straighten it out. After a while, the right 
guy, Buck Copeland, came along, and 
they married and had two sweet little 
girls, Nan and Eire. 

Seven years after her marriage, 
Carol found a lump in her left breast. 
The biopsy performed after the lumpec- 
tomy determined that she would have to 
have a mastectomy, to be followed with 
chemotherapy and radiation. This was 
devastating to all of us. The first week- 
end after all this happened, her broth- 
ers, Bert in London and Harry in South 
Carolina, came home to nurse her like a 
baby. She endured the chemotherapy 
with great spirit, never giving in to self- 
pity. She came down for breakfast every 
morning to get the girls off to preschool. 
Once the girls were out the door, she 
would hit the couch, but not until then. 
Finally, after seven months, she was 
declared "clean." Her hair came back 
and things were bouncing along nicely. 
Six months later came even more devas- 
tating news. 

Carol's cancer had metastasized to 
her liver. Prayer groups were formed, 
and she was on almost every church 
prayer list in eastern Carolina. Once 
again, her indomitable spirit would not 
allow her to give up. She went to every 
practice of Nan's T-ball team despite the 
pain she must have been in. She was 
struggling to maintain the ordinariness 
of each day. Her fortitude was unbeliev- 
able. After spending a day in treatment 
at Duke Medical Center, she went to 
Nan's dance recital. Four days after the 
recital, Carol died. One of her friends 
said, "God just came down that Satur- 
day afternoon and snatched her up." It 
was so quick. None of us was ready for 
it, but I doubt if we are ever ready when 
death comes, particularly to one so 
young. We all think Carol was "ready," 
but she wanted to see her little girls 
grow up so

honor. David, the youngest of her big 
brothers, said Carol's death brought

lived, and perhaps that might be one of 
the answers to the many "whys" of her 
death. Her strength, her uncommon 
courage, and her great faith humbled 
me. Many others who witnessed her 
strength and faith were humbled as well. 
God was good to let me have Carol for 
35 years, and I am forever thankful.

My grandmother was diagnosed 
with breast cancer when I was 
1 2 years old. She had one of 
the first combination mastectomy/ 
reconstruction surgeries done in the 
country, a procedure immediately fol- 
lowing the mastectomy where tissue and 
muscle is taken from the stomach and 
used in the reconstruction of the 
removed breast. Thankfully, the cancer 
was detected early enough that she 
needed no radiation or chemotherapy, 
and her recovery, though painful, was 

At 12, I didn't really understand 
breast cancer. I didn't understand what 
the loss of a 
breast can do to 
a woman's psy- 
che, didn't 
understand that 
my grandmoth- 
er was battling 
for her life. All 
I knew was that 
my grandmoth- 
er was sick, she went to the hospital, 
and then she got better. At 22, I under- 
stand and respect the struggle that she 
went through much more clearly. I have 
heard the stories about a recovery so 
painful that she was forced to sleep on 
the sofa for a month. Her body was so 
weak that she needed support to sleep 
on her side. 

My grandmother never talks 
about the fear she must have felt when 
she was told she'd lose one of her 
breasts, or the fear of knowing she was 
fighting a battle that thousands of 
women lose every year. Instead, she 
continues to live her life with vigor 
that many women half her age would 
have trouble keeping up with. Still 
working full time, she travels four 
weeks a month, often to places outside 
the country. She has been to places I 
only dream of going, and doing so is 
just a natural part of her life. 

The reality of my grandmother's 
cancer hit home last year when we 
participated in our first Susan G. 

Komen National Race for the Cure in 
Washington, DC. As she put on her 
pink shirt to symbolize that she was a 
breast cancer survivor, she looked at 
me and said, "You know, this is my 
tenth anniversary of beating cancer." 
Ten years. 1 thought of all the things 
she would have missed had she not 
found that lump in her breast, if she 
had not had a doctor who took her 
seriously, if she had not had that oper- 
ation. She would have missed my high 
school and college graduations, my 
Confirmation in the Roman Catholic 
Church, and my many triumphs, both 
personal and public. We would have 
missed picking apples in the fall, Sun- 
day afternoon shopping trips, my sum- 
mer vacations away from my parents 
as a child. More recently, as she was 
reading from First Corinthians at my 
wedding, I realized how empty my life 
would have been without her love and 
support all of these years. 

Today, I am an activist. I encour- 
age my family and friends to have 
their yearly mammograms and to per- 
form breast self-examinations. This 

year I organized a 
Race for the 
Cure team at 
work, recruiting 
many people who 
had never before 
participated, and 
personally raising 
over $400 to aid 
breast cancer 
research. I know it's not much, but it 
makes me feel good to know that I am 
in some way contributing to the eradi- 
cation of a disease that affects so many 
women. And I am taking on my 
biggest challenge yet, The Avon 
Breast Cancer 3Day: an annual 60- 
mile, three-day walk from Frederick, 
MD, to Washington, DC, each May. 
In order to participate, I have to raise 
over $1,800. Avon guarantees that all 
of the money raised will go to breast 
cancer research and awareness. I can't 
think of a better way to honor my 
grandmother's struggle with and victo- 
ry over breast cancer. 

And I know as I walk into the 
heart of DC, amidst the thousands of 
other people walking and volunteering 
their time, that my grandmother will 
be there. For that, every day, I am

Round and hard, no larger than a 
marble, but big enough, I knew, 
to turn my life completely upside 
down. I pretended for a while that the 
lump in my breast would go away, but 
when it didn't, I made an appointment 
with a doctor. Since we were living in 
London at the time, this meant putting 
my trust in a doctor I didn't know. He 
ordered a mammogram, an ultrasound, 
and a needle biopsy. Nothing showed up 
on either the ultrasound or the mammo- 
gram, though the doctor could clearly 
feel the lump. The biopsy came up 
clean, too. No sign of malignant cells. 
The doctor told me it was probably 
nothing to worry about, just to wait 
until I got back to the States and have 
it removed. 

We returned home in January, and 
for a while I was busy getting the chil- 
dren settled back into school and 
returning to work myself. There was 
nothing to worry about, right? So I wait- 
ed a couple of months and finally got 
around to seeing the surgeon in March. 
A week after he had removed the lump, 
the doctor phoned. "I'm really 
surprised," he said, "but it was malig- 

I was all too familiar with the rou- 
tine at this point, having dealt with a 
malignant tumor in the other breast four 
years earlier. I returned to the hospital, 
where the surgeon cleaned around the 
area where he had removed the tumor 
and took lymph nodes out from under 
my arm to check for spread of the can- 
cer. It was a classic case of good news/ 
bad news. The good news: like the pre- 
vious cancer, this one had not spread to 
the lymph nodes, it was not a recurrence 
of the former cancer, and it was estrogen 
positive, which meant it was easier to 
treat. And the bad news: it was a more 
aggressive form of cancer, and the tumor 
was larger than the first had been. 

Lucky again, I concluded with 
relief. I'd go through six weeks of radia- 
tion treatments as I had before, and that 
would be the end of it. Then I talked 
with the two oncologists at the local 
hospital. One recommended radiation 
alone (and threw in that I'd be a good 
candidate for prophylactic mastectomy, 
because next time the cancer could be 
the most aggressive form and be 
throughout my system before I discov- 
ered it), but his partner recommended 
chemotherapy and radiation. I began to 

Fall -2000 • Mary Baldwin College Magazine 

get nervous. Which doctor should I lis- 
ten to? Should 1 consider mastectomy? 
What did it mean anyway that I had 
cancer for the second time? 1 began to 
run through all I'd miss hy dying early - 
my twin daughters' high school gradua- 
tions, seeing my sons finish college, 
enjoying retirement with my husband, 
writing the book I'd been planning. 
Then some women I met in a breast 
cancer support group suggested getting 
another opinion at a larger cancer cen- 
ter. Because I was close to 
Charlottesville, I chose the University 
of Virginia Cancer Center. 

From the first moment, my interac- 
tions with the Cancer Center were posi- 
tive. They knew my name and made me 
feel like a person rather than a number. 
I immediately liked my doctor and grew 
to have great faith in him. Never did I 
sense that he was in a hurry. He spent a 
great deal of time listening to me and 
providing me with information, and his 
attitude was consistently reassuring. He 
reviewed my case with a team of doc- 
tors. Their recommendation was unani- 
mous: a mild form of chemotherapy, 
then radiation, because this tumor was 
larger and more aggressive than the first 
one, and because I was relatively young 
to have had cancer twice. They did not 
recommend mastectomy. 

Confident finally about treatment, 
I began chemotherapy in May, sitting 
hooked up to an I.V. for two hours twice 
every six weeks through October. I did 
not lose my hair. The worst side effect 
was the nausea, which got worse as the 
drugs built up in my system. 1 can still 
feel sick to my stomach just remember- 
ing it, and I hope I never to have to go 
through it again, but I am certainly 
thankful it was available. Following 
chemotherapy, I had six weeks of daily 
radiation tteatments. By comparison, 
these had almost no side effects. 

Finally, just before Christmas, I 
was finished. It had been almost a year. 
I was weary and raccoon-eyed, my hair 
was straw, and my skin parchment, but 
I felt victorious. I knew I would soon 
recover my energy, and my chances of 
remaining a cancer survivor are excel- 
lent. I was also more thankful than 
ever before - for doctors and nurses 
who cared, for friends who stuck close, 
and fot family who supported me 
through it all. 

What would I say now to someone 
who has been diagnosed with breast 
cancer? First, don't panic. Breast cancer 
comes in many forms, and tremendous 
strides have been made in treatments. 
Second, no matter how confident you 

are in your local doctor, go to a major 
cancer center for another opinion. 
Physicians differ on treatments, so it is 
essential to pursue the most up-to-date 
and well-informed opinions. Third, 
don't settle for anything less than a doc- 
tor you feel comfortable with. I've seen 
too many friends suffer under the care of 
an insensitive doctor. I believe that hav- 
ing faith in your doctor can be a big 
factor in recovery. Last, find a support 
group. Women who have experienced 
breast cancer themselves can provide 
reassurance and be a fount of impottant

I have always had a reverence for life. 
However, when I was diagnosed with 
breast cancer in 
November 1997, 1 
gained a deeper 
appreciation of how 
precious life is. 
Through the loving 
attention of my 
family, friends and 
colleagues, and students, I came to a 
new understanding of my connection to 
others. I even went through a spiritual 
awakening of sorts. This growth process 
occurred over the year of treatment and 
continues to this day. My choice in 
being open with others about my illness 
helped me to receive the gifts of love 
which were so freely given to me by my 
own family and by my Mary Baldwin 
College family. 

Following a lumpectomy and after 
hearing the pathology report about the 
aggressive nature of the breast cancer 
that involved all 17 lymph nodes sam- 
pled from under my arm, I became 
overwhelmed with anxiety and fear. My 
family rallied around me and helped 
me make some critical medical deci- 
sions that probably can account for 
much of my success, so far, in fighting 
the illness. 

Local doctors were recommending 
that I investigate stem-cell transplants 
at research institutions. I decided to get 
a second opinion at The Breast Cancer 
Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in 
New York City. My brother made 
arrangements for me to see a surgeon 
and an oncologist there. The mastecto- 
my and recommendation for 
chemotherapy I received at Memorial 
were cutting edge for 1997. In fact, I 

was very fortunate that the oncologist 
was aware of a recent study on the 
results of stem-cell transplants versus 
more traditional chemotherapy using a 
new drug for early stage breast cancer, 
Taxol. I asked the oncologist what he 
would recommend for someone he 
loved dearly. He was very clear in stat- 
ing the treatment which I chose to 
undergo. This approach is now being 
used as the best practice for women 
with early stage breast cancer that has 
spread to involve the lymph nodes or 
other sites. 

I recently had the enriching expe- 
rience of helping another woman who 
had just found out that she had an 
aggressive form of breast cancer that 
had spread to her lymph nodes. My 
oncologist called me one evening and 
asked me to do him a favor. Of course I 
was curious, wondering how I could 
help him. He asked it I would be will- 
ing to talk with his colleague's patient 
who was 
overwhelmed by 
the news of her 
breast cancer diag- 
nosis. He said that 
since I was doing so 
well and had had 
an equally serious 
diagnosis, I might be able to help her 
see that there was hope and rich life 
experience still ahead of her. I told him 
I would be honored to help, and I 
called the woman the next day. At the 
end of my first phone conversation 
with this woman, who was about to 
undergo the same medical treatment I 
experienced, she told me that I had 
helped her immeasurably. Coming full 
circle this way in returning the gifts of 
understanding and listening helps me 
find meaning in my own cancer experi- 
ences. I call her now regularly in order 
to shate the kind of loving care I expe- 

My philosophical perspective on 
having a terminal illness is what I call 
"informed denial." I chose to read 
through all of my medical records as 
well as current treatment practice for 
invasive breast cancer, but I also choose 
to deny the statistics concerning recur- 
rence in order to live fully during the 
time I have. In truth, none of us knows 
how much life is ahead of us. The true 
gift of cancer is the heightened aware- 
ness of the joy and beauty that life offers 
right now. The challenge of living, as I 
see it, is both simple and difficult: 
choose to live fully in the present 
despite what life may bring in the

Only women with a history of breast 
cancer are at risk. 

More than 80 percent of women diag- 
nosed have no identifiable risk factor. 

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) 
increases the risk of breast cancer. 

According to the New England Journal 
ot Medicine, the debate over breast 
cancer risk from HRT is far from over, 
but research presented at a recent 
American Cancer Society conference 
suggests that the risk may be less than 
previously thought. 

Mammography is 1 00 percent accurate 
in early breast cancer detection. 

Mammography detects an estimated 85 
to 90 percent of all breast cancers. 
However, some abnormalities are non- 
detectable. If a patient has a lump or 
other change in the breast and the 
mammogram is "negative," the patient 
should discuss that finding with her 

Mammography always finds cancer 
when it is curable. 

Mammography is effective because the 
majority of breast cancers are slow 
growing and may take up to eight years 
to grow from a single cell to one cen- 
timeter; however, some cancers are 
very aggressive and can spread through- 
out the body before they can be detect- 

All breast lumps are cancerous. 

Eighty percent of breast lumps are 
benign (non-cancerous). Despite this 
percentage, it is important for women 
to report any breast abnormalities to 
their physicians. 

If a breast lump is painful, it is not 

Untrue. Cancerous tumors can be

examination is in the shower.

Drinking coffee increases a woman's 
risk of developing breast cancer 

Studies investigating the link between 
caffeine and breast cancer have been 
inconsistent. While it was once 
believed that caffeine caused fibrocystic 
change, many health care professionals 
dispute that. Some women do find that 
reducing their caffeine intake decreases 
water retention and breast discomfort. 

Antiperspirants or 

antiperspirant/deodorant combinations 
are a leading cause of breast cancer. 

These products DO NOT cause breast 
cancer. E-mail has been circulating 
making this claim, but it is completely 

Pesticides, lawn chemicals, and/or dry 
cleaning services cause breast cancer. 

While a number of small studies have 
shown a possible increased incidence 

of breast cancer among women who 
use dry-cleaning and/or lawn services, 
larger studies have failed to show a 
definite connection. 

Nipple discharge indicates breast 

Nipple discharge should be reported if it: 

• is bloody or watery with a red, pink, 
or brown color. 

• is sticky and clear in color or brown 
to black in color (opalescent). 

• appears spontaneously without 
squeezing the nipple. 

• is persistent. 

• is on one side only (unilateral)

cancer, she will lose her breast

A mastectomy ensures breast cancer 
will be eliminated forever.

not guarantee that breast cancer will 
not recur. Some women experience

Chemotherapy will make a woman's 
hair fall out. 

The loss of hair is a temporary side 
effect of some forms of chemotherapy, 
but not all. Also, as with so many facets 
of breast cancer and breast cancer 
treatment, side effects can vary accord- 
ing to the each patient's unique 
response to the drugs. 

Oral contraceptive pills cause breast 

No significant risk of cancer has been 
noted in women using oral contracep- 
tives, even women with increased risk.

Colosseum. Rome. 

January 19 

I got up early and joined 
Deeana for the trek to the 
Vatican Library. We crossed 
the flat top of the Janiculum 
and then walked downhill, 
armed with portable comput- 
ers. Bare sycamores line the 
street, pruned so the branch- 
es reach almost straight up, 
creating a majestic silhou- 
ette. The hill is dotted with 
the famous umbrella pines of 
Rome, some bent almost 45 
degrees from years of wind. St. 
Peter's dome on the adjacent Vatican Hill 
peeks through the trees ahead. The view 
across the Tiber River to our right is spec- 
tacular: the Pantheon, church domes, the 
Colosseum, all bathed in the golden light of 
morning. The walk was brisk. We passed St. 
Peter's, free of scaffolding and sparkling 
clean for the Jubilee Year 2000. A creche 
still stands in front, a reminder that Christ- 
mas has barely passed. 

We arrived at the Vatican shortly after 
9:00. Deeana flashed 
her ID as we entered 
St. Anne's Gate and 
passed the Swiss 
Guards in their color- 
ful uniforms designed 
by Michelangelo. She 
cheerfully steered me 
through the complex 
bureaucratic proce- 
dure, which is so typi- 
cally Italian. My letter 
of introduction from 
Man - Baldwin College, 
two awful passport- 
type photos, and my 
passport did the trick. 
Now I have my own 
Vatican Library card, 
valid for 20 visits 
through February and 
renewable if I return 

collection, which has open 
shelves. The Stampaa collec- 
tion holds printed books in 
closed stacks. You may order 
three books for the morning 
and two for the afternoon. 
The Mamiscritri collection 
holds rare printed books and 
the old handwritten manu- 
scripts. You're allowed three 
per day. As we worked 
there, I watched people with 
gorgeous illuminated manu- 
scripts on their bookstands 
peck away at computers — a 
strange contrast. 

We left at 4:00 and trudged uphill to 
the bus stop. The orange city buses have 
the same "SPQR" insignia as the ancient 
Roman military standards. The sky was 
overcast, but a spectacular golden light 
bathed St. Peter's and Castel S. Angelo. 

Tuesday, January 25 

I saw by Deeana's full mailbox that 
she had not returned from Siena, so I set 
out alone for the first time. What a good 
day it turned out to be! I 
discovered material that sup- 
ports my thesis — printed 
texts of fourteenth century 
liturgical dramas from Orvi- 
eto that I did not know 
existed. I look forward to 
discussing them with MBC 
Professor Emeritus Fletcher 
Collins back home. I need 
copies, and the Vatican pho- 
tocopy service is expensive - 
$4.00 for the first page of 
each book, and 50 cents a 
page after that — but the 
books are not available else- 

Piazza Barberini. Rome, and the Triton 
Fountain designed by Bernini in the 
17th century and at the top of the 
Acque Vergive aqueduct 

The catalog system in even - Italian 
library is different. You quickly come to 
appreciate our uniform Library of Congress 
and Dewey Decimal classifications. Even 
the American Academy has its own 
unique, non- American system. On the pos- 
itive side, the major academic library cata- 
logs in Rome are computerised and 
accessible from any of the libraries. The 
Vatican Library houses three main collec- 
tions. The most accessible is the general 

Around 3:30, I left for 
the bus stop. I watched the 
new blue and orange Jubilee 
Year tourist busses glide 
around empty. No one is on 
them but the driver. They 
never stop. No one knows 
where to buy tickets or where the bus stops 
are. It is like a Giorgio de Chirico painting 
or the Twilight Zone. Apparently, the 
anticipated tourists, expecting large Jubilee 
crowds, stayed home, at least for the win- 
ter. In addition to poor attendance in 
Rome, January tourism in Florence is down 
30 percent. For us, it's great: clean monu- 
ments and no crowds. 

At dinner, a historian from Princeton 
related with horror his day at the Vatican 
Library. His discovery was worms, living 
worms, crawling in a priceless old manu- 
script. He presented his find to the desk 
clerk, who merely shrugged and answered, 
"We have many old books like that." The 
scholar was beside himself. Conservation in 
European libraries and museums is not 
what it is at home. 1 remember handling 
Signorelli's and Michelangelo's drawings in 
the Uffiri — no gloves and window shades 
flapping in the summer breeze. In the 
United States, whete we have so much less, 
we are much more careful. 

Saturday. January "29 

I went out for dinner with a historian 
from Vanderbilt and Catherine Renne, an 
architect whose specialty is Roman 
hydraulics. An enthusiastic and willing 
teacher, Catherine captivated us with her 
descriptions of the waterworks of Rome, 
ancient onwards. She told us what waterlines 
lay beneath our feet and where they led. 
Instead of just "city water," as we have in the 
United States, Rome has two types: potable, 
cleaned for drinking, and non-potable, indus- 
trial water, which serves the fountains. 

Water is not wasted in Rome. She 
explained that the Acqua Vergine and other 
ancient aqueducts still bring water into 
Rome. Water runs by gravity from fountain 
to fountain. Bernini's Triton Fountain at 
Piazza Barberini (17th century) is the highest 
on the Acqua Vergine. The water descends 
to the Tfevi Fountain, then to fountains at 
Piazza Colonna, the Pantheon, and to Berni- 
ni's famous fountain of the Four Rivers at 
Piazza Navona, each one lower than the one 

Roman fountains rarely have jets 
because of the gravity flow. Most Roman 
fountains cascade. The water remaining in 
the fountains often is routed to nearby build- 
ings for flushing toilets and industrial uses. As 
gravity and topography require, aqueducts 
may go through buildings. The Aqueduct of 
Trajan runs beneath the American Academy. 
Near the Pantheon, waterlines have been 
underground since Roman times. Until 
recently, the pope controlled the waterworks 
in Rome. We saw a fifteenth-century papal 
coat of arms (Sixtus JV's oak tree) on a ser- 
vice door to an aqueduct still in use. 

By the time we arrived back at the 
Academy just past midnight, I was whipped. 
And the Mary Baldwin students complain 
that they walk a lot in Italv!

Trevi Fountain, Rome (fed by the Acque 
Vergine acqueduct). 

Monday, January 3 1 

Today's highlight at the Academy was 
an evening lecture by Professore Giorgio 
Croci, chief structural engineer for the 
post-earthquake restoration at the Basilica 
of San Francesco in Assisi. The tragedy of 
the devastating 1998 earthquake was com- 
pounded because, in addition to being a 
shrine to St. Francis, S. Francesco contains 
frescoes by most of the important 
fourteenth-century artists. Built on a hill- 
side, S. Francesco is made up of two 
churches and a cloister, or dormitory, for 
the Franciscans. The thirteenth-century 
upper church - yes, one church is built on 
top of another - is cross-shaped, with the 
nave running east/west, crossed by the 
transept. The lower church was also con- 
structed in the thirteenth century. The 
cloister - another "square doughnut" like 
the American Academy - abuts the north 
side of the church on the lower level. 

The ceiling of the upper church col- 
lapsed in two places: over the front door 
and at the crossing of the nave and 
transept. In addition, the upper wall of the 
north transept caved in just above the old- 
est paintings in the church. To reach the 
damage in the north wall - probably a 
height of at least 125 feet - the engineers 
decided to work from a crane rather than 
build a scaffold. However, no crane could 
fit through the entrance arch to the clois- 
ter below, so a bigger crane had to lift the 
smaller one over the wall! Croci showed 
blow-by-blow photographs: crane up, crane 

suspended over the wall, crane low- 
ered. My heart was in my throat. 

In the late twelfth century, 
builders replaced the original wooden 
ceiling. They added Gothic arches, or 
vaults, inside to support the new 
masonry ceiling. The roof of the 
basilica covers the vaults, leaving an 
"attic" in between. Over the years, 
old roof tiles and other rubble collect- 
ed on top of the vaults. This 
contributed to their collapse during 
the earthquake. Apparently, when 
previous workers re-roofed, they dis- 
carded the old terra cotta tiles in the 
"attic" instead of bringing them 
down. Considering the weight of the 
tiles and the distance, it is easy see 
why. The restorers took out some 200 
tons of debris. 

si Conditions inside the building 

S were treacherous, but restorers need- 
£ ed access to the ceiling in order to 
repair it, so they erected scaffolds 
inside. The restorers above the ceiling 
talked by radio to those below. The walls of 
the church had moved in the earthquake, 
and in some places a worker could fit a 
hand comfortably into the crevices. Using 
syringes and tubes, restorers injected adhe- 
sive into the cracks to repair the damage. 
They had to drill into some of the frescoes 
to reinforce the arched support of the ceil- 
ing. This doesn't begin to describe all the 
other high-tech engineering used to stabi- 
lize the building. Amazingly, the church 
reopened in December after only two years 
of restoration. 

Tuesday, February 1 

Today was Orvieto day. The 8:15 train 
is semi-local, so the trip took about one 
hour and 15 minutes. Heavy fog enshroud- 
ed Umbria (the region surrounding Orvieto 
and Assisi), as the guidebooks had said to 
expect in the winter. Orvieto crowns a tall, 
steep hill of golden tufa rock. Almost all of 
the buildings there use tufa. The region is 
known for monochromatic cities, all built 
of local stone. Assisi is pink, sometimes 
bleached to a creamy white. Perugia is 
brown, the color of "burnt umber," a name 
that reflects the color of the Umbrian soil. 

I found the cathedral deserted and 
quiet except for the hum of the prayers of a 
few nuns and the intermittent hammering 
and ringing of cell phones of workmen in 
the choir, whom I could hear but never 
saw. The paintings in the choir are newly 
unveiled from a decade of scaffolding, so I 
had my first view. Then I slipped into the 
south transept chapel to savor Signorelli's 

frescoes in natural light. 

These unheated Gothic churches in 
winter teach you the meaning of stone 
cold. 1 took notes with gloves on. The 
gatekeeper eventually returned (surely he 
had left to warm up) to take my ticket and 
turn on the lights. Although normally the 
harsh artificial light makes the frescoes 
appear garish, today I needed extra illumi- 
nation. The over-life-size figures looming 
overhead and the intense action of the fig- 
ures on the walls can make you dizzy as you 
look up and around to take it all in. What 

As 1 left town, 1 stopped to purchase 
two bottles of Orvieto Classico wine for my 
husband David, who arrives Friday. This 
was a true labor of love, since 1 was travel- 
ing alone and already carrying a briefcase, 
two big books, and a couple of little gifts. 
And I still had the bus, funicular, train, 
another bus, and a walk to the American 
Academy to maneuver. 

Friday, February i

arrival, and sat at my computer watching

the sunrise. What a gorgeous sight- Clear, 
yellow light illuminated the trees in the 
park across the street and made the warm 
colors of the nearby buildings even rosier. 
David arrived around 10:00, after maneu- 
vering through a train strike. We walked, 
the best way to see Rome, and drank a late 
afternoon cappuccino at Tassa d'Oro near 
the Pantheon, reputedly the best coffee in 
Rome. The Pantheon (c.160 AD) astound- 
ed David. The best-preserved of the Roman 
temples, it's huge — 144 feet wide, 144 feet 
tall with the largest dome ever built with- 
out metal reinforcement. We still don't 
fully understand how the Romans 
engineered it. 

Tuesday. February 8 

David and I left early for Orvieto. We 
dozed, but the train went through many 
tunnels, and the pressure on my ears kept 
waking me. It was foggy again, but less so 
than on my previous visit- When we 
reached the Piazza del Duomo (cathedral 
square), David turned in a complete circle 
to take it all in. The size of the cathedral 
outside and in surprised him. Then we rang 
the doorbell at the archives. While David 
dozed in an uncomfortable chair, I browsed 
fourteenth- and fifteenth-century liturgical 
books, all beautifully illuminated. How 
amazing it was to handle them. The hand- 
writing and the abbreviations were difficult, 
plus the scribes left no white spaces on the 
precious parchment to separate tests. I 
finally found the liturgy I was seeking, and 
it confirmed my intuition that Signorelli 
had based his frescoes on the liturgies for 
the feasts of All Saints and Advent. 

The Ovato Fountain, Villa d'Este, Tivoli, built by Pirro Ligorio, the original architect 
for the villa, c. 1550-1570. 

At 12:45, my archivist friend Dacio 
Riccetti announced that the archives would 
close. The three of us dined royally at near- 
by Trattoria Etrusca, run by the same family 
who owns the little hotel where I stay with 
Mary Baldwin students. They welcomed us 
like long lost family — greetings, hugs, kisses 
on both cheeks. Later, laden with packages, 
w-e boarded the bus (along with about 20 
schoolboys) for the funicular and train. It 
had been a full and productive day, but the 
most exciting part was being able to intro- 
duce David to Orvieto- 

Saturday. February 1 _ 

We went to Tivoli today, about an 
hour's train ride from Rome, and toured 
Hadrian's villa (Roman) until it started to 
rain. After a cappuccino, we went to Villa 
d'Este (16th century), landscaped with fab- 
ulous terraced gardens and fountains. It has 
inspired David, who loves to garden, all 
over again. That could be dangerous — Car- 
dinal d'Este owned an aqueduct. 

Tuesday. February 15 

David says he is "ruined out" after see- 
ing so much of ancient Rome — the Forum, 
the Domus Aurea, the Baths of Caracalla, 
and the Pantheon, among others. I have 
shot hundreds of photos for my classes. 

Romano, Academy groundskeeper and 
unofficial chauffeur, drove us and our consid- 
erable luggage to the airport in his little red 
Fiat. David rode in the front, white-faced for 
most of the trip, as Romano skillfully maneu- 
vered the busy streets of Rome at about 50 
MPH. When we got to the autostrada his 
speed doubled, which for him was business as 
usuaL Upon arrival, Romano went inside for 
a cart and returned with a huge one. He 
made a quick good-bye, and in we went, 
blithely pushing our luggage. No sooner had 
Romano left us than a desperate man came 
screaming toward us, flailing his hands and 
yelling, "No! No!" He was a porter and 
apparendy, when his back was turned. 

Romano had pinched his cart. He unloaded 
us in the middle of the floor, muttering the 
whole time. Soon we saw him come by with 
about 40 Japanese women, their suitcases 
precariously piled on the cart. We laughed, 
drank our last cappuccino, and boarded the 
plane for home. 

It's back to reality now, but I return 
immeasurably enriched. Fresh ideas and 
new photographs will enhance my classes at 
MBC, and new infotmation supports my 
research theories. I feel energized and 
inspired by my work, my new 
acquaintances, my adventures with David, 
and the golden light of Rome.

Virginia Foundation for 
Independent Colleges 


Each year Mary Baldwin College benefits significantly from the generosity of busi- 
ness, industry and other private sources across the commonwealth through the 
efforts of the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges (VFIC). In 1999-2000, 
the VFIC distributed over $4.5 million. Mary Baldwin College received $186,682.59 
as its share. 

The VFIC is a fund-raising organization established by and for the benefit of its 
members, 15 private colleges and universities. Business and community leaders 
assist in obtaining contributions from the corporate community. These monies are 
distributed each June to member institutions according to a standard formula: 40% 
on the basis of undergraduate enrollment and 60% divided equally. VFIC has been 
recognized nationally as the premier independent college fund among 38 similar 
associations in terms of its annual distributions.

tor learning have been encouraged by her 
mother, who supported Garces' decision 
to enroll in college as a 14-year-old, but 
did not make the decision tor her. This 
lesson in independent thinking has served 
Garces well, contributing to her maturity 
and ability to focus on her goals. Since 
she was a young girl, she has concentrat- 
ed on the sciences in hopes of pursuing a 
career in medicine, specifically oncology. 
Her mother's experiences as a breast can- 
cer survivor influenced her choice. Even- 
tually, Garces would like to work in Latin 
America, where she hopes to open a 
health clinic for "less financially stable" 
women. To experience life there, she will 
be spending May Term of 2001 in Latin 

Celeste Rhodes, executive director 
for PEG, nominated Garces for the award 
because of her standing as a superb stu- 
dent. "I was so happy to hear that Gian- 
nina had been named as one of the 
recipients. She is such a deserving student 

of this sort of recognition. She is serious, 
focused, and very disciplined. We are all 
so proud of her." 

The Gates Millennium Scholarship's 
purpose is to expand access to higher edu- 
cation to Americans who reflect the 
diverse society in which we live. The 
scholarship is administered by the United 
Negro College Fund and its partners, the 
Hispanic Scholarship Fund and the 
American Indian College Fund. The 
Foundation seeks to increase the number 
of African Americans, American Indians, 
Alaska Natives, Asian Pacific Americans, 
and Hispanic Americans enrolling in and 
completing undergraduate and graduate 
degree programs. Nominations come from 
teachers, deans, program directors, princi- 
pals, and professors. 

During the June 8, 2000, press con- 
ference to announce scholarship recipi- 
ents, Microsoft Computer founder and 
Gates Foundation co-founder Bill Gates 
stated, "The best and the brightest stu- 

dents shouldn't be denied access to higher 
education simply because they can't 
afford it. Melinda and I hope that this gift 
will not only benefit thousands of stu- 
dents, but also benefit America by 
empowering a diverse generation of lead- 

President and CEO of the United 
Negro College Fund William Gray III 
added, "On behalf of the UNCF and its 
partners in the Gates Millennium Schol- 
ars Program, the Hispanic Scholarship 
Fund and the American Indian College 
Fund, I congratulate these outstanding 
and deserving students for their dedica- 
tion to scholarly excellence. This pro- 
gram strengthens America by helping 
thousands achieve their leadership poten- 
tial. We're honored to be a part of this 

*A spokesman for rJie Gates Millennium Scholar 
Program said that a 1 6-> ear-old would probably 
qualify as the youngest recipient but they could not 
verify this until they completed further research. 

Cokie Roberts Draws Crowd as 2000 Smyth Leadership Lecturer 

Veteran journalist Cokie Roberts told a 
packed audience in the First Presby- 
terian Church on September 25 that 
women hold the key to this year's presidential 
election. "These men are vying for our vote, 
and this is good news indeed." 

Later in her speech, addressing students 
directly, she said, "You all are very- blessed 
young women. You are getting a wonderful 
education and you are also entering into an 
economy that is flourishing and vying for 
you. This is a world where you are more 
equal than in any period in humankind." 

Roberts, chief congressional analyst for 
ABC News, award-winning journalist, and 
TV co-anchor, is a political science gradu- 
ate of Wellesley College. Her remarks 
came as part of Mary Baldwin's fourth 
annual Smyth Leadership Lecture. 

In welcoming students and friends 
from the college community and beyond, 

President Cynthia H. Tyson noted MBC's 
tradition of preparing students for leader- 
ship, an emphasis on helping women 
become ethical leaders that hales back to 
the institution's beginnings as Augusta 
Female Seminary in 1842 and that has 
become the college's hallmark. In was in 
recognition of this common thread that 
Mary Baldwin trustee H. Gordon Smyth 
and his wife Mary Beth '47 established the 
Smyth Leadership Lecture Series to 
enhance opportunities for students across 
all of MBC's programs: traditional, ADP, 
MAT, VWIL, PEG, and Quest, a program 
for thoughtful exploration of faith. 

Early in her presentation, Roberts 
related what she referred to as her "one 
joke," but her dry observations and amus- 
ing anecdotes often brought laughter from 
the crowd. She traced the evolution of the 
women's vote, draw- 

ing from generations 
of journalistic and 
political history, 
interspersing stories 
about "Mama," former 
U.S. congresswoman 
Lindy Boggs, who 

spoke at MBC in 1960 and is currently the 
U.S. ambassador to the Vatican at the age 
of 84. Roberts related that her mother, 
while serving on the Banking and Curren- 
cy Commission, added "sex or marital sta- 
tus" to the bill that outlined conditions 
under which lending institutions could not 
discriminate. She quipped, with obvious 

pride, "That's how we got equal credit, 

Elaborating on the increasing influ- 
ence of women in the political arena, 
Roberts predicted that presidential candi- 
dates George W. Bush and Al Gore would 
come out strong on issues that are near to 
the hearts of women: economy, health 
care, crime, gun control, moral values and 
the entertainment industry, and education. 
She noted that women tend to vote Demo- 
cratic and that there is no difference 
between male and female voters on abor- 
tion and equal rights. 

Roberts' lecture was only part of her 
appearance at 
Mary Baldwin. 
Earlier in the 
day, communi- 
students and 
faculty infor- 
mally qui::ed 
her on a variety 


"You ail are very blessed young women. You are 
getting a wonderful education and you are also 
entering into an economy that is flourishing and 
vying for you. This is a world where you are more 
equal than in any period in humankind." 

of topics includ- 
ing interview 
techniques, the 
effects of tech- 
nology on journalism and the political 
process, and violence on television. To the 
question of whether she has political aspi- 
rations, Roberts emphatically answered, 
"No!" Later, following her prepared 
remarks and audience questioning, Roberts 
and the Smyths were honored at a recep- 
tion and dinner with student leaders.

Our Gracious God. 

When we were children, 

and the terrors of night or day scared us, 

some loving person would say, 

"Don't be afraid. Everything will be all right." 
In one sense, that was a lie. 
In the short run, everything is not going to be all right. 
For 131 people on a routine flight from Chicago to 

Pittsburgh, everything is not going to 
be all right. 
Anything can happen and often does. 

But is there any sense in which our reassuring mothers and fathers were 
In some ultimate, cosmic sense, 

is a-emhing going to be all right? 
Most religions would have it so. 
But for us immersed up to our eyeballs 

in this worid and its politics, its immediacy, 

the promise that in the end everything is going to be all right can 

seem remote, unhelpful, and possibly pure illusion. 
We daughters and sons of the earth, "a little worn and ragged but alive." 
need to be 

assured as surely as we did in childhood. 

Give us the peace that comes from having the long view 

and the energy to do what needs 

to be done in the present. 
We need the perspectives of life viewed from the mountaintop and in the 
Give us that, and may your spirit be with us and light our way.

alumnae/i rmws 

i — 


For those of us who work in the 
academic environment, Sep- 
tember is our New Year's, a 
time when we make resolutions 
and plans for a better year 
ahead, and I'm sure all of our 
students are doing that, too. By 
the time you read this maga- 
zine, students from all of our 
programs will have 
started a new semes- 
ter of classes. The 
women in our tradi- 
tional, VWIL, and 
PEG programs 
arrived on campus in 
late August, while 
our ADP and MAT 
women and men 
never stopped taking courses, as 
these programs operate year- 

In addition to being your 
new association president, I am 
also an associate professor in 
business administration for the 
college's Adult Degree Program 
at the Richmond Regional 
Center. I am excited and hon- 

ored to be the first MBC faculty 
member to hold the position of 
alumnae/i president and look 
forward to sharing with you, 
from my unique perspective, 
what alumnae/i of this college 
are doing. 

With its myriad programs 
and diverse student population, 
Mary Baldwin College 
is more than you real- 
ize. I hope you'll make 
every effort to visit the 
main campus, as well 
as our regional centers 
in Roanoke, 
Charlottesville, Rich- 
mond, and Weyers 
Cave, whenever you 
can and see for yourself how 
we're growing. You're always 

With best regards, 

Cathy Ferris McPherson 78 
Alumnae/i Association President

Noshua Watson '95 

by Charles Culbertson 

If 1995 graduate Noshua Watson stops achieving 
this very second and does nothing but reminisce 
for the rest of her life, she will have accom- 
plished more than many people do in a lifetime. 
At age 13, this native of Silver Spring, MD, 
enrolled in Mary Baldwin College's Program for 
the Exceptionally Gifted. At 17, she earned her 
bachelor's degree. Then, in the middle of her 
pursuit of a doctoral degree in economics at 
UCLA, she changed course to become a reporter 
for Fortune magazine, one of the nation's most 
prestigious financial publications. All by the ripe 
old age of 22. 

Watson, who has worked as a staff writer 
for Fortune since January, does not take success 
for granted or consider it her rightful due. She 
has dreams for herself and believes in working 
hard to make them happen. She also is aware of 
the potent force that background and good for- 
tune have played in her life. 

Watson hails from a family in which the 
pursuit of education, the develop- 
ment of character, and the setting of 
personal goals are as important as a 
balanced diet. Her parents, Rudy 
and Aremita Watson, have high 
expectations for their three gifted 
offspring, and all three have risen to 
the challenge. Two have already 
graduated from MBC's Program for 
the Exceptionally Gifted, Noshua 
and Tenea '98. The thitd, Cambria, will graduate 
in 2002. 

"I have to admit that my mom made me 
apply to PEG," said Watson. "But once I came to 
Mary Baldwin for the interview, I knew that this 
was where I wanted to go. There was nothing 
like it anywhere else." 

So, just shy of her 14th birthday, Watson 
entered the ranks of college freshmen. Being 
thrust into an experience usually reserved for 
older students was a mixed bag. "It was both the 
best thing I've ever done and the most difficult 
thing I've ever done," she said. "On the one 
hand, the challenges presented to me by PEG 
and the college environment were exactly what 
1 needed at that time in my life. On the other 
hand, college is tough and adolescence is tough. 
Put the two together... Well, let's just say there 
were a lot of adjustments to make." 

In 1995, Watson earned her bachelor's 
degree in economics from Mary Baldwin. A col- 
lege graduate at an age when the vast majority of 
het contemporaries weren't even out of high 
school, she was faced with the unique dilemma 
of what to do next. For an achiever like Noshua, 
however, the dilemma didn't last long. She 
applied and was accepted to Stanford Universi- 
ty's doctoral program in economies. 

During graduate school, Watson wrote the 

occasional essay and made notes for future sto- 
ries. When it became clear to her after a couple 
of years in the program that she didn't want to 
spend her life as an academic, she began turning 
her notes into articles and book reviews and 
posting them on her own web site. "I wanted to 
try writing," she said. "I didn't get a chance to 
explore it in depth in college or in graduate 
school - in grad school, especially, you have to 
give up nearly everything - and it was a dream 
that just wouldn't go away. 

"I thought that working for a magazine 
would be great, but in order to do that you 
either need experience or to know someone," 
said Watson. "As luck would have it, I knew 

And so in December 1999,' Watson said 
good-bye to a Ph.D. in economics and hello to a 
job as a reporter. "Fortune, which is owned by 
Time Inc., is one of the few places where you can 
be paid a full-time salary to write," she said. 
"Everyone else has to freelance, to 
hustle all the time. I realize how 
lucky I am." 

All those math courses she had 
taken, all those hours studying eco- 
nomics, all that wtiting on the side - 
every bit of it combined to put her in 
a unique position to report for a 
financial publication. Whereas most 
of Fortune's reporters come on board 
with writing experience and then have to learn 
economics, Watson already had the economics 
part down. 

"Whenever the magazine does complicated 
calculations or handles a lot of statistics, they 
call me in," she said. "Also, having an academic 
research background helps me on the reporting 
end of things." 

One of her favorite recent projects was a 
story contrasting the worker of the 1960s with 
the worker of today. "That's the kind of story 
that gives me the biggest thrill, the one where 
there's a trend or something I can reference in a 
pop-culture way," Watson said. "But I also like 
to argue the hard numbers, to analyze and 
crunch data, and to prove certain economic 

In September, Watson's co-authored piece on 
"40 Wealthiest Americans Under Age 40" was fea- 
tuted as the cover article in Fortune, and she 
appeared on Black Entertainment Television News. 

Although Watson finds Fortune a wonder- 
ful place to work, she still has other aspirations. 
So what's next? 

"A novel," she said. "1 want to give fiction 
a shot." 

For now, though, Noshua Watson is happy 
to be living out a dream made possible through 
her own hard work and talent.

Hero of the Environment: Lundie Spence '68 

by Charles Culbertson 

If you arc looking for a hero, look no further 
than Lundie Spence '68. In 1987, Spence gath- 
ered 1000 volunteers to collect 14 tons of trash 
from North Carolina beaches. It was the first 
Big Sweep, a project that is now incorporated 
into every one of North Carolina's 100 county 
governments, and it helped win Spence the 
National Oceanographic and Atmospheric 
Administration's Environmental Hero for 2000 
Award for "tireless efforts to pre- 
serve and protect the nation's 

"I had the good sense to 
get it started and then move 
over and let the next level of 
people - who are extremely 
competent - take over and keep 
it going," she said of the project. 

Spence, who was 
born in Richmond and 
grew up in Christians- 
burg, says she acquired 
her appreciation of the 
environment through 
her parents. She 
describes her mother, 
an Australian, as an 
avid "water-beach- 
ocean person," and her 
father, a Richmond, 
VA, native, as an 
accomplish sailor. 

Spence's interest 
was further ignited 
when she became a student at Mary Baldwin 
College. There biology professor John Mehner 
introduced her to the out-of-doors application 
of biology. While an MBC student, she spent a 
year studying in Denmark and was the recipient 
of the Margarett Kable Russell Scholarship in 
her senior year. 

"I have always felt that through educa- 
tion we have an opportunity to affect people's 
behavior," said Spence, "to help them make 
the wisest decisions possible so that the detri- 
mental impact on the environment is mini- 
mal. That's what attracted - and continues to 
attract me - to a career in environmentalism." 

Spence completed her master of science 
degree in biology at Florida State University 
in 1971 and her Ph.D. at North Carolina 
State University in 1990. For the past 21 
years, she has worked for the North Carolina 
i Grant Program, part of a 
national network of marine research programs 
in coastal and < Ireal Lakes states. There, she 

teaches graduate and undergraduate classes in 
multidisciplinary oceanography and environ- 
mental education and works on developing 
projects, ideas, workshops, proposals, and con- 
ferences. She is currently writing a chapter for 
a book and putting together materials for a 
teacher seminar on Hurricane Floyd, as well as 
negotiating with a public television producer 
to develop a documentary on the hurricane. 

Believing that teachers need to 
understand environments in other 
countries, Spence teaches profes- 
sional development courses for sci- 
ence teachers during the summer. 
She has taught on soils and water in 
the Peruvian Amazon, coral reef 
systems in Belize, and tropic marine 
ecology in Costa Rica. This experi- 
ence has led to 
her support of 
projects in 
which volun- 
teers work on 
§ projects world- 
§ wide.

I has been a dri- 
g ving force in 
g the develop- 
"■ ment of a 
North Caroli- 
na coastal

In 1983, she was awarded the National Marine 
Science Educator of the Year Award and later 
was the recipient of the North Carolina Gov- 
ernor's Award for Conservation and Commu- 
nications. In 1992, Spence was chosen to 
receive the Sesquicentennial Medallion from 
Mary Baldwin College, an award given to 50 
alumnae who had brought recognition and 
honor to the college through their achieve- 

Working to change people's thinking 
about the environment can sometimes seem 
like an uphill battle. Despite the challenges, 
Lundie Spence remains optimistic. "Once peo- 
ple get into the environment and see how 
beautiful it is and what it does for their souls, 
there is a greater chance that they will put their 
mouths, votes, and money where their good 
experiences have been and work to preserve the 
environment," she said.

A Moveable Feast: Melissa Woods '90 

by Martha Gates 78 

Planning a party? Entertaining some 
VIPs at home? Trying to figure out what 
to have for dinner? If you live in the 
Charlotte, NC, metropolitan area, help 
is a phone call away. Melissa Woods '90 
is the owner of Menu By Melissa, a per- 
sonal chef service. Her business offers 
menu planning, grocery shopping, and 
an in-home chef service. 

Menu by Melissa started part time 
in June of 1996 and became a full-time 
venture in June of 1998. "I love my work 
and have fun everyday," she said. 
"Whether you are planning a special 
event or just dinner for the family, my 
company can help make your life a little 

"We don't just prepare meals. We 
typically plan a customized menu with 
meal options for one to two weeks to 
meet the clients' dietary needs and 
requirements. We prepare the meals in 
the clients' homes and package the meals 
with nutritional analyses and finishing 
instructions included. We clean up and 
take out the trash when we leave, and 
the dinner is there ready to be served 
when the client comes home. The ser- 
vice can even be scheduled regularly so 
there are always meals available to our 
clients and their families." 

In addition to meal preparation, 
Menu By Melissa helps clients with their 
parties and entertaining needs and will 
gladly take on the responsibility for flow- 
ers, rental of china, flatware, glasses, 
serving pieces, bartenders and serving 
staff, and decorations as needed. 

Menu By Melissa evolved from 
Woods' love for cooking. It melded nicely 
with her interests in finance and market- 
ing communications. As a student, she 
majored in marketing communications 
and minored in computer information 
systems. "I use my marketing and comput- 
er skills nearly every day." She recently 
created the company's web page, 

Woods' client base has grown to 
more than 200 in four years, and she has 
one full-time assistant. Besides her Char- 
lotte area clients, Woods recently added 
O: The Oprah Magazine of New York 
City to her list of clients. She explains, 
"One of their employees, who lives in 

Charlotte, had just become a father for 
the third and fourth time (twins) and the 
magazine called Hearst Publishing down 
here and asked what an appropriate gift 
would be tor the family. The folks at 
Hearst said they knew the perfect gift 
and gave them my name. It was a won- 
derful experience." 

To help you prepare for the upcom- 
ing holiday season, Woods has included a 
recipe for Smoked Salmon Cheesecake. 
This original creation can be prepared 
ahead of time and frozen. Then you can 
simply thaw, garnish with red onions, 
hard-boiled eggs, and capers and serve 
for brunch or a holiday party. It pairs 
fabulously with the Horseradish Sauce 
recipe also included. 

Smoked Salmon Cheesecake 

2 oz. walnuts 

1/2 cup butter, melted 

36 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese 

4 large eggs 

1 qt. boiling water 

6 large eggs, hardboiled and chopped 

Horseradish sauce (recipe below) 

8 oz. graham crackers, finely crumbled 
14 oz. 1 % cottage cheese 
8 oz. cream cheese, softened 

1 lb. plus 6 oz. smoked salmon, divided 

2 cups red onions, finely chopped 

Bakery-fresh bread or gourmet crackers 

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. 

In a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, combine walnuts and graham cracker crumbs and 

process until mixture is finely chopped. Slowly add the butter and process until mixture binds together. 

Press the crumb mixture firmly over the bottom and partly up the sides of one 12" springform pan or 

two 6" springform pans. 

Puree the cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, and cream cheese in a food processor until smooth. Add 

one egg at a time, blending after each addition until the mixture is smooth. 

Place mixture in mixing bowl. Chop the 6 oz. of smoked salmon and stir into cheesecake mixture. 

Pour cheesecake mixture into prepared springform pan(s) and place in preheated oven. Place the 

boiling water in an ovenproof container below the cheesecake(s.) Reduce the oven temperature to 250 

degrees and bake for approximately 45 to 60 minutes or until set. 
• Remove from oven to cool. When cool, remove from springform pan. At this point, the cheesecake may 

be frozen for up to 3 months. To freeze: wrap tightly in plastic wrap and secure in airtight freezer bag. 
To serve: place the cheesecake on serving platter. Surround the sides in an alternating pattern of red 

onions, hardboiled eggs, and capers. Roll each slice of the remaining smoked salmon and garnish the 

top of the cheesecake. Sprinkle with a few red onions, hardboiled eggs, and capers. Serve at room 

temperature with the horseradish sauce and bakery-fresh bread or crackers. 

1 pint heavy whipping cream 
White pepper, to taste 

Horseradish Sauce 

6 oz. horseradish 
Italian parsley, garnish 

Salt, to taste 

Place the heavy whipping cream in a medium-mixing bowl. Whisk by hand or with mixer until it holds a stiff 
peak. Stir in the horseradish. Combine and adjust seasonings as needed. Cover and refrigerate until 
serving time. Garnish with a sprig of Italian parsley and serve with the Smoked Salmon Cheesecake. This 
sauce also pairs nicely with roast beef.

A Taste of Leisure 

by Rick Plant, associate professor of English 

When we bought the house, we found 
the pair of metal rings already ser into 
two perfect pines. The hammock was 
on sale for 15 bucks. This afternoon, 
Hamlet, the cat, decides to join me. A 
quick leap brings him to my chest. 
1 should scrape and paint the 
peeling window trim before the winter 
storms. 1 have a hook to write. 
Beneath, leaves whisper, Rake me. 
Dishes, laundry, letters to be answered, 
checkbook to 
be balanced - 
these poor 
tasks are with 
us always. 
Specifically, I 
ought to read Tom Jones and put a stew 
on for the family's supper. Clothes out- 
grown demand a pruning in the chil- 
dren's closets. Instead, I choosi to 
spend this minute in the backyard 
hammock. Aren't such moments of 
suspension, brief stints of leisure, 
themselves a kind of obligation? 
Enough sun's leaked down 
through the colander of branches over- 
head to wash my face. Hamlet's lying 
still, his claws retracted. There, 1 think. 
That's nice enough. Reclining in a 
hammock on an autumn Sunday. No 
class to meet; no papers waiting to be 
graded. Sun on my face, the cat a soft, 
warm lump upon my chest. Listen to 
the conversation of the birds. Yes, fine. 
Well, not exactly. Not perfect, after all. 
In fact, it's fake. A sort of pseudo-relax- 
ation. Virtual leisure. Counting sheep 
is not the same as sleeping. I'm devot- 
ing too much effort to appreciate this 
moment. In fact, I'm working at it. 
After just a couple minutes, maybe 
three, I even ask myself, Okay, how long 
was that! Long enough to qualify as 
break! Restlessness and duty start ti i 

What's bred this darned impa- 
tience, this suspicion of a down time? 
Have 1 slipped out of practice? When 
else have I enjoyed a guilt-free goofing 
off? In the middle of my fourteenth 
summer, a case of mono kept me from a 
typing class and made me miss my 
weekly Boy Scout meetings. Restricted 
to my bed, I worked for hours on a 
jigsaw puzzle, spreading out the pieces 
on the solid surface of a card table that 
lay collapsed upon the covers. Finished, 
the puzzle picture showed a lanky man 
smoking a corn cob pipe while sitting 
on a cabin's shady porch, his legs 
crossed at the ankles, boots propped on 
the railing, his gaze directed to the 
trees. That, I thought then - and still 
want to think - is surely leisure. Earned 
indolence. Edenic quietude. Old I 

enjoy it then, those days in bed? Sure- 
ly not. Leisure is a healthy, chosen 

Mere idleness is not the same. 
Found moments of inaction start to fill 
with calisthenics of the mind, reaching 
back to yesterday's hurtful remark, 
stretching for an image of tomorrow's 
triumph. It's way beyond the physical. I 
can sit for half an hour at this keyboard 
- or stretched across my bed - and still 
be working. Drafting sentences. 
Rehearsing lectures. Listing my week's 
errands and appointments. 

All those hot pursuits our culture 
elevates as leisure seem to miss the 
mark. Sport is by its very nature work - 
hard work, for some of us. Travel car- 
ries an itinerary. Entertainment bur- 
dens us with preparation, expectation. 
Leisure, I mean the real McCoy, can't 
be sttictly measured by a curtain's rise 
and tall, nor by the route one tramps 
across a golf course, an active enter- 
prise of stride and swing and concen- 
tration. So where is leisure found? 
Maybe, like the mind's subconscious, it 
hibernates deep down? Once you start 
to catalogue and question, leisure van- 
ishes - or changes into something else. 

Freud tells us work and love are 
the twin symptoms of a healthy psyche. 
Somewhere along the way, did we con- 
join these into love of work? 

It's popular to blame our leisure's 
weight loss on modernity. And it's a 
centuries-old argument. In Attain Bede, 
George Eliot asserts, "Leisure is gone - 
gone where the spinning wheels are 
gone, and the pack-horses, and the 
slow wagons, and the peddlars.... Inge- 
nious philosophers will tell you, per- 
haps, that the great work of the 
steam-engine is to create leisure for 
mankind. Do not believe them; it only 
creates a vacuum for eager thoughts to 
rush in." Now our treadmills run on 
megahertz. Demands stream in at laser 
optic speed. Citizens of a world-wide 
borough, we're enmeshed in a virtual 
web of civic and commercial obliga- 
tions and concerns. 

It it isn't instinct, maybe leisure is 
an attitude, an open meadow in the 
mind. If, perversely, 1 feel pressured on 
a slow, unstructured Sunday afternoon 
like this, maybe I should trust those 
Buddhist monks who teach how total 
relaxation comes with practice, how 
familiarity breeds contentment. Take 
the cat. Before the age of 35, I never 
knew a cat. We took in Hamlet when 
his owner moved away. Over the 
months and years, we've grown accus- 
tomed to each other's face. Look at us 
now. Snuggled like two honeymooners 

in this shady bower. No, it's a flawed 
analogy. How can I fotget the claw that 
rakes my hairline in the pre-dawn 
hours, his way of asking (asking?) that I 
let him out? How can I ignore the 
vacuuming for fleas? Relationships - 
even of the inter-species sort - are born 
of sacrifice and work; repetition by 
itself is not enough. Even the marriage 
of these metaphors is crafted and 
unnatural, "worked over." John Keats 
was full of bunk: nothing springs as 
naturally as leaves on trees, except tor 

Maybe, then, pure leisure is a 
myth. Maybe, like the wispiest of 
Plato's forms, what most inspires us is 
simply its idea, its vague, delicious pos- 
sibility. This must be the reason why I 
like the presence of a hammock in my 
yard, a hammock I inhabit one slim 
hour (the total ot 10-minute bits and 
pieces) every year. Ot course, there are 
some vigorous competing myths. Ye 
shall know them by their works - not by 
their daydreams or their quiet 
moments. Work hard, play hard. Publish 
or perish Idle fingers are the devil's work- 
shop. The surest way of killing time is 
working it to death. When I'm dead, I'll 

But now I'm drifting into Zeitgeist. 
These noisy admonitions must be 
silenced or ignored. Otherwise I stand 
no chance ot catching that soft sigh of 
satisfaction loosed from a single soul at 

If anyone can guide me to the 
heart of leisure, Hamlet can. This after- 
noon provides him birds and squirrels 
for stalking; a goldfinch nibbles at the 
feeder. An unfenced neighborhood 
invites his feline prowl. But tot now he 
seems content to lie here like some 
tuiry afghan, curled between my body 
and the sun. What's he got that I ain't 
got? Nothing I can see - unless it is 
that tongue. I hadn't noticed it at first, 
but half an inch of bright pink cat 
tongue stands straight under Hamlet's 
nose, so motionless you might mistake 
it for a rosy smudge. I try my own 
tongue, working hard to emulate the 
mind - the tongue - ot cat. It doesn't 
happen. Too short or muscular, too 
cozy in its cluttered cave, it finds the 
stretch unnatural. So I remain excluded 
from the world of cat, unequipped to 
taste whatever Hamlet tastes. A snake 
detects heat with its busy tongue. And 
what does Hamlet taste with his? The 
mingled temperatures of autumn air? 
The heat of hidden rodents laboring? 
Rich tang of the decaying Kin es ' 
Scents ot a garden buried, some unbur- 
i ii :d I Jen losr to us?
